Construction deterioration & building durability glossary: Terms of science, engineering, architecture, and trade

This glossary's entries are primarily in American (and sometimes Canadian) English, although I am fully aware that there is, well... something else out there. If what are you looking for is not here, you may want to try our Building Pathology Glossary which besides Definitions in English, adds the dimension of Romance languages by translating into French and Roumanian.

While our Building Pathology site is not perfectly organized (to say the least), it may help if you go to The Site Map and find articles relevant to your particular problem. A B C D E F G-H I-J-K L M N O P-Q R S T U V W X-Y-Z

Last, but not least, a poor excuse for a general English-Romanian Dictionary (University of Timisoara) and its reverse which is no better: Romanian-English Dictionary (University of Timisoara). And yet, they are just about the only game in Net town!
